‘Only summer signing who has been an upgrade’ – Chelsea fans are loving in-form 25-year-old

The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern haven’t been too impressed with their side’s recent transfer business. The Blues have shifted their transfer policy over the last year or two, with more of a focus being placed on squad depth, rather than squad quality.

Indeed, the signings made by the club over the summer have been underwhelming at best.

Tiemoue Bakayoko has really struggled, whilst Danny Drinkwater hasn’t been able to make much of an impact as of yet. Likewise, Davide Zappacosta has been average at best. However, there has been one shining light for the Blues.

Antonio Rudiger has looked very good after a shaky start to life in London, with a flurry of good performances coming in recent weeks.

Chelsea have had a tough time of it defensively as of late, but the German has stood out as a consistent performer at the back. He’s still not quite the finished article, but in time, it’s clear that he will be quite the asset at Stamford Bridge.

His fine form clearly hasn’t gone unnoticed amongst the Chelsea fans over on Reddit, who have recently been discussing the German’s form. They’ve been very impressed, it’s fair to say, with many drawing comparisons between him and Chelsea starlet Andreas Christensen – with some even suggesting that he’s better than the Dane!

Take a look at what they’ve had to say below…
